Pics of my aero tweaks on 2000 Camry
 
I've been playing with tweaks since I joined maybe 2 weeks ago.

Haven't taken pics myself.

Wife did to post on another forum as a kind of joke on me.

Since the pics are now on the web, might as well put them here.

Please comment/question as appropriate.

Good start. Those blocks over the upper grill should probably be shortened so that they end where the hood begins.

Me and a friend did this:

Completely out of tape. Don't feel too bad. That cover helped tremendously, so now we're working on a solid one.

Great Start!

Here's what "LostCause" suggested for a very similar setup on a T-100 Pickup:

I also agree with shortening the grille-block to the hood end.

The mud flaps should be taken off.

Nope, they should not be removed from the car. They should be moved to the front of the wheel wells.

Unless there is unseen bracing, your air dam is too flexible. It looks to me like it will bend back, letting air under the car.

At speed, does the plastic sheet billow out into a smooth contour?

Yeah, slightly. I put some "ribs" across so it could only conform so much. It held up quite well for being all tape. Rode the interstate for an hour or so in a pretty hard rain storm.
